It’s the day we’ve waited for — the Disney Skyliner is OFFICIALLY OPEN!
We’ve already taken to the skies previewing the newest transportation at Walt Disney World, witnessed the dedication ceremony, and answered all of your biggest questions ahead of its opening to the public, and now it’s your turn to soar over Disney World on the Skyliner!
When the Disney Skyliner Gondola System becomes operational for the public on September 29, 2019 (see the announcement here!), it begins a new phase of transportation (and views!) in Walt Disney World. We’ve learned a lot about the Skyliner since the system’s announcement in 2017 (like how it’s designed to keep riders cool!); but now that all the pieces are essentially in place, guests have a TON of questions before they take their first flights on the new transportation system.
We’ve got the pro tips you need to make the most of your rides on the Disney World Skyliner!
Disney Skyliner Stations
There are five Skyliner stations. [Read more…]
We’re visiting Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort for menu updates, new merchandise, and construction progress! Here’s What’s New!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort — Gran Destino Construction
Progress continues on Gran Destino Tower at Coronado Springs, where exterior work seems to be approaching completion.
Gran Destino Tower opens for guests beginning July 9, 2019! We can’t wait to check out the Tower’s rooftop dining location Toledo — Tapas, Steak, and Seafood and those views from the top!
What’s NEW at Disney’s Caribbean Beach and Coronado Springs Resorts?
A lot of construction! Both resorts are seeing lots of new additions from the Skyliner System to BRAND NEW resorts. Caribbean Beach, of course, is adjacent to the new Riviera Resort and with that proximity comes a lot of action!
While the Riviera Resort isn’t a part of Caribbean Beach Resort, guests are still feeling the impact of it’s construction. Just how much will this construction affect your visit? Read on to find out!
Disney World’s newest transportation option, the Disney Skyliner System, has been testing gondolas on the lines over the past couple of weeks. Now, it looks like they are testing the system at full capacity and speed near the Hollywood Studios Skyliner Station.
Those are actual gondolas, not the test gondolas we first saw at the beginning of the month. We can even see some of the artwork on the gondolas through the tarps.
Our recent visit to Hollywood Studios included lots of construction walls — we’ll update you on the Skyliner Station, New Bus Stations, Park Entrance Area Construction, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Construction — but that isn’t all! We’ve also got updates from the Shops and Stores in the park.
First thing we noticed? It looks like the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has had an update. The Hanes logo used to be on the guitar pick on the ride’s iconic guitar, but now there is some artwork on the guitar pick instead.
Every visit to Epcot is filled with construction updates, new food, and fun merchandise — and this visit to Epcot is jam-packed with new food (including gluten-free snacks, chocolate covered pretzels,and more), the cutest and sweetest smelling merchandise, and progress on new rides, restaurants, and the Skyliner.
After spending some time with our new BFF Pinocchio, we walked the park — here’s what we found!
Hello from Hollywood Studios! There’s a lot coming to this park between Star Wars: Galaxy Edge, a Lightning McQueen attraction, the first Mickey and Minnie focused attraction in Disney World, and the Skyliner Gondola system! See what we found in addition to all of these changes this week.
Look who we spotted — Mickey is all decked out in his birthday best for this 90th Birthday Celebration Plush. We saw him over his birthday weekend in November, then he “disappeared”. Now we’ve spotted him back in stock in Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs! Welcome back Mickey!
